Abstract : Work was initiated in the fall of 1969 along the North Carolina coast on the stabilization of dredge spoil with Spartina alterniflora Loisel. Studies included methods of propagation and establishment, growth rates, factors affecting growth, and substrate and elevational effects. Reasonably satisfactory methods and procedures have been developed and some tentative guidelines formulated for the use of this plant for stabilization of dredge spoil. (Author)
